The US-based network infrastructure provider CommScope said that it has won two infringement cases against Comlab. The infringement cases were filed in German patent court alleging that Comlab had infringed mobile radio transmission patents owned by Andrew Wireless Systems, an affiliate of CommScope.
After spending considerable time, the court came to the conclusion that Comlab has infringed CommScope's European Patents EP2180605B1 and EP1022849B1. These two patents relate to mobile radio transmission repeaters and an apparatus for setting the gain of a repeater.
The District Court of Düsseldorf, Germany passed the decisions in favour of CommScope and allowed it to preliminarily enforce. Now, the American firm have the option to recall and destroy the infringing products as well as get a preliminary injunction against further infringement.
The company informed that its two more utility model enforcement actions are pending against Comlab's repeater systems RUD19-5 in the District Court of Düsseldorf.
“CommScope invests considerable resources designing and patenting its innovative products to provide superior value to its customers. CommScope is committed to protecting its investments and maintaining its differentiating product features by defending its patent rights around the world,” Thomas Kummetz, vice president, Distributed Coverage and Capacity Systems, CommScope, said adding that he is very happy on the outcome.
CommScope has enforcement actions currently pending against numerous wireless infrastructure manufacturers, including multiple enforcement proceedings pending in the District Court of Berlin, Germany, enforcing both patents and utility model rights against Cobham's idDAS system.
In addition, CommScope's patent infringement action in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas against Dali Wireless, enforcing multiple patents relating to digital distributed antenna systems, is scheduled to go to trial later in 2019.
